Holiday Warmth

I got a perfect little present in the mail yesterday: the Restoration Hardware Gifts catalog. I know it’s still October, but every single page just enveloped me in warmth and joy and coziness. It was like one big joyous hug. Flipping through the pages, I just wanted to curl up next to a fire with loved ones, sip hot cocoa, play games and watch the snow fall outside. It even makes me excited for winter to creep in…which might be happening sooner than later. Snow tomorrow??

I just had to share some of my favorite things from the catalog…fur, lights and fun…

Holiday snow and cookies in DC

Happy new year. One of my resolutions is to blog more and to blog more meaningfully. So sadly, I’m finally getting up posts on my Christmas cookies, which I baked during the snOMG storm in DC during the holidays.

The following posts are two of my favorite and go-to recipes and I’m very excited to share them with you. While I’m sick of the cold already in the city, it will most likely stay this way and hopefully give you a snow day to bake some of my cookies. And play in a snow ball fight. And warm up with some hot chocolate. Cheers.
